Booked last minute once we were in Europe and this was THE BEST HOTEL of the 7 we stayed in during our European vacation. Great location. Small room but high ceilings, terrace overlooking the front, sparkling clean and comfortable. Despite major construction out front, we heard NOTHING! The hotel provided earplugs but we didn't need them. Maybe we just got lucky with the noise...tram station and train station are literally out the front door so super convenient location and really not that noisy. Basel is a GREAT city and the Schweizerhof is a great base. Wish we could have stayed longer! We were there only 2 nights and hated to leave the hotel and the city of Basel. A/C saved us in the heatwave too! And public parking was a quick 3 minute walk and about 23 euros a night...cheaper than parking in New York City overnight:)

Front desk staff are great - courteous, friendly, and helpful. Restaurant staff, mostly wonderful, it seems they are over worked so mostly not smiling but understandable because they are rushing around to get everyone seated, tables cleaned. However on Sunday morning, I was personally ignored after seating, no staff came ask me what I would like to drink while everyone else was attended to. I asked once, nothing came. Had to ask the second time, then they didn’t offer anything other than plain tea. Worse, after I went to second serving, they took away the tea pot but left the dirty plate on the table.

A Old school Hotel with a wonderful feel, very helpful genuine staff, even the maids were smiling and laughing on multiple occasions. Nice little touches for hot weather like a complimentary ice\cold drinks fridge on every floor, and a free ce cream if you wanted one. The room itself was of a efficient high standard, with nothing to niggle, and fittings of quality. All in all a very pleasant experience.

An excellent choice in downtown Basel
This is a very good hotel, and ideal for someone visiting Basel by train, since it's right in the square by the station. The trams are right at your doorstep, too. The hotel itself is first-rate. My room was lovely and clean, with a comfortable bed, modern bathroom and lots of cable TV channels. There was even free water and soft drinks in a fridge in the hall (you open it with your room key.)The only downside was that there weren't many restaurants nearby that were open late at night for a quick bite: most of the eateries in the station close down fairly early.

What a fantastic hotel! Everything felt luxurious, a great value for the price. Convenient location right by the train station, which is a quiet and nice area, not noisy or chaotic at all. An easy walk to the center of town, and, of course, quick access to all the trams. Everyone on the hotel staff was very friendly! Was given a card for free transit use and half-off museums upon arrival, which was very much appreciated. Great breakfast included. Beautiful room and bathroom. Would stay again!!
